The book is about the impact of war at sea on
climate, which showed dramatic effects soon after naval war commenced on 1st
September 1939. WWI already had changed course of climate. The facts presented
on 178 pages aim to pave the way for a new thinking on climate change issues
and that the driving force is the ocean, which ultimately control weather and
climate. Two devastating sea wars during the last century prove validity of
connection. Navel war altered direction of climate twice.

Summary on how
men changed climate twice
The aim of the book is to point the attention to the
oceans. In order to explain the real cause of global rising temperatures,
scientists started to study the phenomenon in earnest in the 1980’s. The aim of
the book is to ensure that the mainstream of climate research is not constantly
missing the point. Our aim is to establish that anthropogenic climatic changes
are really due to two grand field experiments that men undertook during the
The purpose of this book is to show that the activities of war at sea during
WWI and WWII correlate perfectly with the only two significant climatic changes
from 1900 until 2000: the one that started in 1918 and lasted until 1939 and
the second one which started in the winter of 1939-40 and lasted until the
early 1980s. The temperature rise during the recent 25 years can be “newly
caused”, but could also be a résumé of the steep temperature rise between 1918
and 1939, interrupted by WWII.
CO2 gases are the top blamed cause for the so-called global warming. And it
seems it is going to remain the same for most of the official world. The aim of
the book is to leave no doubt that climate is the continuation of the ocean and
that the ocean determines where the climate is heading to. In this scenario,
CO2 may have only a remote role to play.
Oceans and seas are very complex. They are only randomly monitored ever since
and, even today, not very well understood. But war at sea during two major
world wars was a force reckoned immediately even by the ocean. Two climate
changes during the last century prove the point. Winter temperatures had risen
in Spitsbergen by 8ºC, between 1918 and 1939. The whole Europe got warmer year
by year. German Chancellor Adolph Hitler started the war in 1939 and Northern
Europe was immediately dragged back into Little Ice Age conditions not
experienced in 100 years. Two further arctic war winters followed in the region
with extreme naval activities until the war at sea went global, in 1942. And
what followed without any delay? Can one speak of a surprise that a four
decades of global cooling followed? Particularly the Northern Hemisphere felt
the cooling, because here naval war was the most devastating and left a
pronounced fingerprint in the downturn of global temperatures.
Even though the book section on naval warfare from 1942 until 1945 is short,
the link between naval forces and global cooling is overwhelmingly convincing.
Actually, it is the first reasonable explanation at all.
Even more reliable proof are the several regional super-large field experiments
conducted four times in Northern Europe’s waters: 1916/17, 1939/40, 1940/41 and
1941/42, strongly felt throughout the region by extreme winter temperatures.
Each time the effect was like a “big shock”.
More than 5ºC winter temperatures below average are totally out of tune with
standard climate that should not allow any rest before not understood. But
nothing happened in this respect over more than six decades.
Until now, only one of the most ruthless WWII warmonger, German Vice-Chancellor
Hermann Goering, commented the arctic winter of 1939/40 by saying that “a
higher power has sent the harsh winter conditions”. He was never prosecuted for
being together with other Nazi leaders responsible for three polar winters and
for four decades of global cooling.
Imagine there is global cooling, and no one cares. Imagine there is global
warming and the world is highly concerned. The two assertions do not fit
together. The first reflects circumstances more than half a century ago; the
latter is the situation now. Insofar, the statements seem to contradict each
other. But in a wider sense, they fit well.
Someone who claims to be able to explain current global warming must also be
able to explain a pronounced global cooling which effected climate only a half
century ago. Ignoring the event for over
six decades could be more ignorant than relating matters to a ‘higher power’.
Remember when unusual powerful hurricane ‘Katrina’ hit New Orleans, in the
summer of 2005. People insisted being informed to understand the matter. Assume
winter temperatures suddenly turn to Ice Age conditions not experienced for
more than one hundred years, but no one talks about it because there is war.
That was actually the case during the winter of 1939/40 when in several
locations, in Northern Europe, average temperatures were more degrees lower
then during the whole previous century, and WWII war machinery cooled down the
earth for four decades.
If this investigation succeeds in proving that two major wars changed the
course of climate twice in the last century, it will also prove that shipping,
fishing, off-shore drilling and other ocean uses constantly contributed to
global warming since the start of the industrialization, more than 150 years
ago. A new chapter on the climate change issue could be opened, giving more
attention to ocean affairs through forceful use of the potential of the “1982
United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea”, which would lead to a
better understanding and protection of the stability of our short-term weather
and long-term global climate.
To the Book Summary
THOUGHT IN SUMMER 1939
Asta Lindskog had only ten minutes for her lunch break
at mobile phone giant Ericsson’s canteen in Stockholm. And the soup was too
hot. She stirred the soup with the spoon. Her thoughts drifted to the looming
war in the hope that British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain could persuade
Adolph Hitler not to make war. If not, how would the future be for little Eric
and sweet Signe, her children of four and two? And the spoon moved quickly.
“Calm down”, she ordered herself, “ it will not come to the worst”. Realizing
that the soup was suddenly too cold, her mind jumped: “Sweden will hardly see a
mild winter if navies at war churn and turn the Baltic Sea about as I just did
with the soup.” The war started within a few weeks and all countries around the
Baltic Sea experienced the coldest winter in more than 100 years.
